For those of you who don't know, a burpee is a staple crossfit exercise.
There is nothing about them that is fun. They suck. (I can totally vouch for this since I had to do 50 last night at crossfit.)
So when my crossfit pal, Stacy, informed me that she was making her kids do burpees when they fought or were disrespectful, I knew I had to adopt this form of discipline.
They hate them.
In fact, Taylor told me last night that he was going to have a horrible summer because he would be doing burpees all the time. Of course, that's when we had a heart-to-heart about how he wouldn't have to do any burpees ever again if he doesn't fight with his sister.
Taylor pretty much does the burpees without complaining, just to get them over with. Ashton, on the other hand, does the burpees in full-on drama mode. You know, pretending to pass out on the couch, huffing and puffing, and whining the whole time.
Here's hoping we have fewer and fewer burpees in our future.
